We returned to the Hazel Bank Hotel for a second visit and, as last time, had a fantastic stay. A great hotel with excellent food and a good wine list. Gary and Donna are wonderful hosts and despite the bad weather we really enjoyed our stay. We would highly recommend this hotel and will return for a third stay soon....

Hazel Bank is superb. Gary, Donna and Adam have created something really special in Rosthwaite, Borrowdale. The hotel building is beautiful both inside and out, set in several acres of stunning countryside ( especially at this time of year when the colours are breathtaking) with a wide variety of walks, both easy and challenging, straight from the front door.

Staying at Hazel Bank was a new experience for both myself and my partner. Over a 40 year period I have stayed in the Lakes in tents, camper vans, progressing to camping barns smelling of wet dog and full of Bear Grylls types being macho about their walking prowess, finally to little cottages with temperamental Agas and wood burners.

This is a perfect place to stay when visiting the Lakes. Hazel Bank is beautiful, tastefully decorated, and spotlessly clean. Sitting in the parlor in the evening before dinner, sipping on a gin and tonic helps you realize that you have somehow found yourself in an incredibly civilized place. We had dinner there several nights, and they were among the...
